Out of control truck hits Binghamton synagogue building
A man was reportedly slightly injured when the van he was driving crashed into a car and then hit a synagogue in Binghamton.
The vehicle was heading west on Riverside Drive when it crossed the eastbound lane, collided with a parked car, and then crashed into a wall of the Beth David Synagogue.
Rabbi Zev Silber was sitting in a dentist’s chair when he learned of the accident, which happened just before 11 a.m. on Wednesday.
Silber and his wife examined damage to a wall shortly after the incident. The building is located at 39 Riverside Drive. They said they were relieved that there were apparently no serious injuries as a result of the crash and that the damage was relatively minor.
The driver of the truck reportedly had a medical problem before the accident. It was not known if the police had issued tickets.
